"Highly recommended. The quality is immediately evident. Pure, deeply-seated, strong fruit drives the wine but it solidly backed by smooth, fine, tight tannins and fresh acid, the balance and construction are excellent. A beautiful expression of fruit that is very savoury on the up-take, mulberry, cherry, chocolate, a big grind of white pepper, with blackberry and coffee oak on the tail, it finishes long and dry.. " - Ric Einstein TORBwine 2006.
Appearance – Brilliant, deep blood red with purple hues
Nose – Ripe rich mulberry and pepper characters with a hint of chocolate. Elegant oak and tobacco notes.
Palate – Again intense mulberry fruit with ripe plum and sweet vanillin oak. A rich, luxuriant mouthfeel with concentrated fruit and grippy fine-grained tannins that balance the fruit. The integrated oak tannins persist through to complement the lingering fruit driven palate.
A big powerful wine that while young and lively now, will drink well, but will greatly improve with age.
The perfect accompaniment to all meat dishes!
